Well, I'm sorry to say we won't be going back. 2nd time there and it's just gone so down hill. The rooms are musty and overpriced. Bathroom and shower were awful! And there is a smell in the dining area that's as if something died in a corner and nobody's bothered to look for it.
The "breakfast" consisted of stale ceral and toast. Some fruit, but since you had to eat it in the musty smelling room, we didn't even eat there the last morning. I just wanted to get my kids home into their clean beds. I will say, the location is great, but we looked around at some other places right near there and found them to be cheaper and much cleaner! Sorry. They need to throw $30,000 into the place and clean it up!

Close to Cape Ann's 20+ restaurants and dozens of shops and galleries, as well as the Rocky Neck Art Colony (America's oldest and continuous operating art colony). Just 55 minutes by car or commuter rail to Boston and less than 2 hours drive from other New England destinations.
